BMC Casino 3 Hearts Pool Cue Info
Info on the BMC Casino 3 Hearts Pool Cue
It is believed that BMC ran out of the "hearts suit" cards, and sometime around mid 2012 started building their BMC Casino cues with the Spades card-suit. Sometime around May 2012 (and onward to present-day) the Budget Billiards web page for the Casino #3 cue read as follows:
All BMC Casino-3 Cues are now built with Spades cards
Note: There are a few floating around with the hearts cards which might have dates after mid-2012. See the example in the gallery above which appears to be dated either 2013-05-03 or 2015-05-03 (hard to make out the year). We're still researching the dates on those.
